(NODAWAY COUNTY, Mo.) A 20-year-old Rock Port man was injured after a deer struck the motorcycle he was driving on U.S. 136 two miles west of Burlington Junction in Nodaway County early Sunday morning.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that James Barnhart was driving a 2019 Harley Davidson westbound on U.S. 136 just after 1:00 a.m. when he slowed down to avoid striking a deer that was crossing the road. A second deer then struck the rear of the motorcycle and caused Barnhart to lose control and travel off the right side of the roadway.

Barnhart was transported by ambulance to Fairfax Community Hospital with moderate injuries.

The Nodaway County Sheriff's Office assisted at the scene.

Cold Temperatures continue through the day Sunday. We will see mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 10s to lower 20s. While the sun will be out for the game tomorrow, we have some northerly winds gusting between 20 to 25mph making it feel much colder. Wind chills will only be brushing 0 by kickoff. If you are headed to arrowhead tomorrow, make sure you bundle up. Temperatures will hold in the 20s and 30s through the first half of the week and we will see some chances for rain and warmer weather after midweek.
